Taking place on premier farms throughout Maine
Learn farming skills from farmers themselves
Discover the diversity of Maine agriculture
Help keep alive the tradition of free and mutual exchange of ideas that makes the Maine organic farming community so vibrant and innovative.
These workshops are designed for and targeted to participants in MOFGA’s Apprenticeship Program, but are free and open to anyone interested. They are intended to give apprentices and other young, beginning, and aspiring farmers the chance to visit other farms, learn from farmers about their areas of expertise, and socialize with peers. The workshops follow an informal format. They generally begin in the late afternoon with a farm tour, followed by a presentation and demonstration of the topic of the day. Participants are then invited to stay for a potluck supper and discussion – bring a dish or something fresh from the farm to share.
